Golf can be played by everyone, irrespective of age, gender or ability and is one of the few sports in which men and women can compete alongside each other. As well as being a fun way to spend a few hours in the open air, it will help keep you fit and healthy – a walk around the course will easily accumulate the 10,000 steps that all of us are supposed to walk every day – and a typical round of golf will burn off at least 500 calories, without the need to work-up a sweat.

Medical experts at the University of Edinburgh have also suggested that playing golf in the great outdoors can help you relax, relieve stress and depression, reduce the risk of dementia and help prevent more than 40 major chronic diseases such as breast cancer, heart disease and diabetes. A study by health experts in Sweden has even indicated that the death rate for golfers is 40 per cent lower than for other people of the same sex, age and socioeconomic status, which correspond to a 5-year increase in life expectancy.

Club clubs are also great places to socialise and meet new people and unlike most sports, the competition rarely gets in the way of the conversation.

From early April, this website will feature thousands of events throughout the country for you to have a go at golf, from taster sessions exclusively for women to social events.
